As I watched George Floyd be ruthlessly murdered on the street by a uniformed police officer, I thought, “My God, this is really the story.” George Floyd is the American story. Black people in America have had a knee on our necks for 400 years.
I believe in justice. I believe in mercy. They are not mutually exclusive. Both are expressed through the cross. We should absolutely stand for justice, but we should stand in awe of mercy.
